For premium stylings, Alustra® Woven Textures® Collection is inspired by design. Fabrics are sourced from around the world to create a truly special window treatment. Alustra Woven Textures are available in Roller Shades, Roman Shades and Skyline® Gliding Window Panels.

A roller shade is a simple shade that lays flat when lowered and when raised, it wraps around a cylinder. Roller shades come in four fabric collections with 48 gorgeous colors that range from popular whites and neutrals to vibrant hues.

Cellular shades are energy efficient thanks to the unique honeycomb pattern in cellular shades, they trap air before it reaches the interior of the house, and reduce energy costs in both hot and cold weather.

Honeycomb Shades are the original cellular shades, specifically engineered to provide beauty and energy efficiency at the window in both cold and warm climates. Their honeycomb construction traps air in distinct pockets, which creates insulation that can help lower your energy consumption and energy bills.

Roman shades are offered in sheer, light-filtering and room-darkening fabric opacities, and a range of styles and fold sizes. Roman shades are different from standard window shade in that they stack up evenly when being opened.

Older corded window coverings may have looped pull cords or accessible inner cords that could pose a risk to small children. Beyond Shades offers several safety solutions, including motorized options and various operating systems to go cordless!

PowerView® – Our brilliant wireless operating system gives you the power to control and schedule your Hunter Douglas window treatments via remote control or your mobile device, and creates a safer environment for homes with young children and pets.

UltraGlide® – Features a single retractable cord or wand that always remains a constant length when raising and lowering your window treatments. 

SoftTouch™ – A battery-powered system with wand-controlled operation. 

Standard Cordlock – It acts like a cord, but locks into place for easier operation and a cleaner appearance. 

EasyRise™ – Pulling down on the front of this continuous loop lowers your shade. Pulling on the rear of the loop raises it.
